    Right, we'll sign off now after what has been a busy old day on the F1 beat.

    Daniel Ricciardo's pace around the Marina Bay Circuit has been nothing short of stunning and it'll be interesting to see what he can do in FP3 and qualifying tomorrow - and if anyone can step up to challenge him.

    F1's busy working launch also saw the i's dotted and the t's crossed on a number of significant deals, with McLaren and Honda's divorce throwing them into the waiting arms of Renault and Toro Rosso respectively.

    You can also add to that Carlos Sainz's move to Renault, Singapore's new four-year deal, and Nico Rosberg joining forces with Robert Kubica to get the Pole back into F1.

    Wow. Well done everyone.

    I'll leave you with links to all of today's stories and a rather nice feature.

    Go on, spoil yourselves.

  5. Sainz off at Turn 18

    Not for the first time a car sails straight on at the left-hander that dives under the grandstand at Turn 18. Carlos Sainz is the culprit this time. He reverses (almost collecting Vettel as he does so) and thunders back to the pits.

  6. Chequered flag

    FP2 ends and Daniel Ricciardo is atop the pile again by the small matter of half a second. An impressive statement of intent.

    Max Verstappen makes it a Red Bull one-two, with the Mercedes cars of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas third and fourth.

    Full result to follow.

    Three minutes to go. The order looks set and the dominant Daniel Ricciardo is poised for a sweep of the Friday practice sessions.

    McLarens sixth and seventh as it stands. The team targeted this race as one where they can put on a good showing and it's a case of so far so good for Alonso and Vandoorne.

  9. Race-pace sim runs: Advantage Ricciardo

    At the moment Red Bull are still looking very, very strong. Ricciardo is on average half a second quicker than Lewis Hamilton, and he's the next quickest guy. Then it's a tenth to Vettel

    Haas tells Romain Grosjean to pit because of a telemetry problem.

    The Frenchman has not been a happy bunny in that car and has been complaining about handling.

    They may be on long runs but these guys are still pushing.

    Bottas locks up big style after going over the Anderson Bridge, while Haas' Kevin Magnussen has brushed the wall.

    "I hit the wall a little bit hard," the Dane tells his team. "It feels OK but it was hard."
